Climate change is the greatest threat to human civilization. It demands the attention of all people, and must be linked to all issues. We are building a people’s movement from the bottom up that puts pressure on governments, corporations, and other power structures to act on behalf of the people, not the fossil fuel industry and its allies. We are calling on all communities to claim your power and use your power to change the course of history.

Building an Inclusive Climate Movement to create Community Power


Climate change is the greatest threat to human civilization. It demands the attention of all people, and must be linked to all issues.


We are building a people’s movement from the bottom up that puts pressure on governments, corporations, and other power structures to act on behalf of the people, not the fossil fuel industry and its allies. We are calling on all communities to claim your power and use your power to change the course of history.

We imagine a powerful, multi-racial, multi-age coalition working on multiple fronts to meet the challenges of the climate/democracy crisis:

  • building a genuine democracy more powerful than the lobbyists;
  • committing to justice so communities of color and working class communities no longer bear the ecological and health consequences of our dependence on fossil fuels;
  • partnering with labor and neighborhood economic development programs to create new jobs with dignity and comparable pay for workers displaced by the post-carbon economy (like coal miners);
  • expanding economic and health security by expanding Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid 
  • divesting from fossil fuels and invest in locally generated, locally owned energy;
  • creating fair elections with empowered voters to drive out the corporate-owned climate deniers and replace them with our community leaders
  • creating people-centered food, health, and housing sectors;
  • developing local leadership and electoral power in communities on the frontlines; and
  • offering a vision of a better future by accelerating the establishment of a new economy of empowered workers and entrepreneurs with access to working capital.

Only if we work together, can we build a new economy that works for all of us and ensures our future.
